The whole wild world in your living room

When you hear ‘wildlife film‘, you think of Heinz Sielmann, Bernhard Grzimek and other early pioneers, of breathtaking images and exotic locations. Doclights is the leading producer of the genre in Germany. Here, on behalf of NDR, we exclusively produce the major programmes and event films for Sielmann’s traditional series, “Expeditionen ins Tierreich” on NDR, and many shows for the ARD series “Erlebnis Erde”.  The natural environment of our planet is spectacularly staged and screened for a worldwide audience at the highest technical level: with HD high-speed cameras, boroscopic lenses, computer-controlled time lapses and the latest mini-helicopters. Doclights has turned wildlife films ‘Made in Germany’ into highly prized exports.
